Preparing Hearts and Homes for Kids in Foster Care

On Saturday, September 22, 2018 approximately 300 people attended Wait No More at Valley Assembly in Spokane Valley, Washington to hear about the needs of waiting kids in Washington and Idaho foster care. As a result, 92 families initiated the process of foster care, adoption from foster care or supporting families that do! This means that children in Washington and Idaho will wait no more for the families they deserve.

Special thanks to the agencies, ministries and organizations who were represented that day – Spokane Fatherhood Initiative, Spokane 127, A Child’s Hope Spokane, Adopt Idaho, Community Family Services Foundation, Embrace Washington, Fostering Washington, Fostering Idaho, Idaho Youth Ranch, Lutheran Community Services, Men’s Ministry Catalyst, Northwest Adoption Exchange, SAFE Families, Teen & Kid Closet, KMBI Moody Radio, Shine 104.9 and the incredible staff and volunteers from Valley Assembly. The event would not have been possible without you!

If you were unable to attend but would like more information, please download the attendee book for helpful information on foster care, adoption and supporting foster and adoptive families in Washington and Idaho, including contact information for local agencies and organizations.


A father to the fatherless…is God in his holy dwelling…God sets the lonely in families…
